Bash quickie: loop N times, without doing math

Posted 10-22-2012 at 09:07 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

I thought that the only way to do such type of loop in Bash would require something like "n=$(($n+1))" within the loop, with the loop being conditioned to "n" adding up to whatever you want, such as "until ((n==30)) ; do". But you can actually do "for i in {1..20} ; do <whatever> ; done". That's somewhat similar to Basic's "for i=1 to 20 ; whatever ; next i".

But it won't work with variables for the starting and ending numbers....

The Lost Art of Situational Awareness

Posted 10-21-2012 at 07:39 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

I was driving to the store tonight. As I drove through the (seemingly) deserted stretch of parking lot, I came up to a man, woman, and child walking through the dimly lit area. I noticed that they were uncomfortably close to the road, so I started to fade to the left to avoid them. As I approached, the man continued narrowing the gap between my 2 1/2 ton vehicle and his body. His wife wisely stayed to the right with their child...but then an amazing thing happened...

I continued...

Ad-hoc wifi networking?????

Posted 10-21-2012 at 10:36 AM by davetesc

Each time I think I'm getting somewhere I try to do something new and realise how little I know!!!
Having found a cheap usb wifi dongle I thought it would be easy to connect my two laptops so I could just send files between the two without using a memory stick, guess again, obviously I'm missing the simplest of steps but plodding on. :-)
